5th May 2022 - Press Release

Port of Dover Regatta Returns for 2022

It's back! After two years of pandemic restrictions, the Port of Dover Regatta will be held on Saturday 6th August. Attracting thousands of people from the local community and beyond, the Regatta will remain a free event for the public to enjoy. There will be a vast array of water and shoreside activities, entertainment along the esplanade and Harbour, as well as food and drink stands.

Visitors can expect many of the usual much-loved activities to return this summer, with even more to enjoy on the new Marina Curve development. As in previous years, the popular event will be supporting a chosen charity. Further details on this and the full range of activities on offer will be announced in the coming weeks. 

Doug Bannister, Chief Executive of the Port of Dover, said:

“We are delighted to have confirmed the date for the return of the Port of Dover Regatta in 2022. 

The three years since the last Regatta have included challenging times for all and we know that this has been a much-missed event by the community. We are thrilled to be working with Destination Dover on this, as part of a new and evolving events calendar, and we look forward to seeing this free event back on the Seafront as we all come together once again.” 

Diederik Smet, Destination Manager at Destination Dover, said:

“We look forward to bringing this flagship event back to Dover together with the Port. Anyone who would like to participate with stalls, activities, entertainment, food and drink should contact info@destinationdover.org for further details and see here for booking forms.”

Mark your calendars for the headline event of the Summer!
